Man faces more child porn charges

Andrew Douglas Felling, 34, was charged Aug. 26 with the additional offences.

An Abbotsford man who is awaiting sentencing on former child pornography offences now faces nine more charges.

Andrew Douglas Felling, 34, was charged Aug. 26 with the additional offences. They all occurred in Mission in 2005 and 2008, involving a person under the age of 16 and one under the age of 14.

He has been charged with four counts of sexual interference, two counts of invitation to sexual touching, two counts of making or publishing child porn, and one count of possessing child porn.

Felling has been released from custody on $1,000 bail.

Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the new charges stem from an investigation that was continued after Felling’s first five charges were laid in December 2013 and January 2014.

The charges resulted after an Abbotsford Police investigator who was searching online for images of child sexual abuse was able to trace the computer IP address of certain images to an address in Abbotsford.

A search warrant was executed at that home on Dec. 6, 2013, and Felling was arrested but later released on bail.

He was charged the following day with sexual interference of a person under the age of 16.

Four other charges – possession of child pornography, importing or distributing child porn, making or publishing child porn, and accessing child porn – were laid in January 2014.

Felling pleaded guilty in November of last year. He is awaiting sentencing.
